Impressions

Entice drew me with it’s interesting storyline and characters. I really looked forward to reading about Violet’s story and how she navigated this world she lived in and the exiled enemies she had chosen to fight. I do love a good angel story.

Thoughts

I was captivated by the story from the start. With the supernatural battle between good, descendants of angels called Grigori, and the evil fallen angels called the Exiled, in full swing. The world that Jessica Shirvington created was an engrossing one filled with conflict and intrigue that had me flipping the pages to find what was going to happen. With Violet and her friends fighting to stop the exiled from taken over and ultimately destroying the world. Al the while Violet and the other Grigori in training had to deal with their new life and responsibility becoming Grigori which created a story that kept me interested. I enjoyed getting to learn more about the world of both the Grigori and the Exiled. I felt that there was a real battle unfolding and things weren’t as predictable as I thought and in the end it lead me on a ride.

Besides the story capturing and holding my interest, the romance between Violet and Lincoln really made the story for me. There was not a dull moment when they came together and how they tried to figure out whether they could be just friends and partners or explore the true feelings they had for each other which would ultimately hinder their goals at stopping the Exiled. This was not your typical teen cookie cutter romance. It was stuffed with painful and passionate emotional drama and history that had me turning the pages for more.

The action was intense with the Grigori and Exiles both bringing it to the table and not holding back. Just hard, dragged out kicked butt fighting with both sides willing to do whatever was needed to win this battle.

This was a very character driven story, which I enjoyed. All of the characters were very three-dimensional and interesting bringing their own unique element to the story. Even though this is Violet’s story and her journey to be coming Grigori, the friends, love interests, partners and villains played important roles within the story as well adding the intrigue and drama. Phoenix was an intriguing villain, I would have liked to have seen even more of him within the story and I look forward to having him bring more drama and reek more havoc on Violet’s world.

Overall I found Entice to be more than I expected. It had the interesting story, the emotional romance and intense action. The way things ended left me very interested to see were Violet’s journey will lead her.
